Lily Allen and Duran Duran record climate change song

But no Peter Garrett!

By Louise Gray, Environment Correspondent

The world's first musical petition is a re-recording of the Midnight Oil song Beds are Burning. Mark Ronson, Jamie Cullum and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas also took part.

The song has been launched to raise awareness of global warming in the run up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December.

Lyrics include: "How can we dance when our world is turning? How can we sleep when the beds are burning?"

Every download will count as support for the "Tck, Tck, Tck" campaign calling for world leaders to sign up to a tough international deal on climate change by cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

Kofi Annan, former UN chief and head of the Global Humanitarian Forum that is behind the campaign, described the movement as the "Band Aid for the internet generation". …

Beds are Burning is free to download from the internet. Also, you can see it on YouTube.
